eCommerce – Online Furniture Shopping

Filed under: Customer Service,online shopping — ramsblog @ 9:55 pm

At times I think online shopping is so convenient in terms of saving some time, driving in traffic, etc And it all makes sense depending on the situations. However, what would it be if the shipping and handling charges are approximately 3 – 4 times more than the item price. I agree it depends on the size of the shipment, Origin and destination. I am assuming the origin is in the US as well. Anyways, I was looking at IKEA website to find out about shipping options on an item we had seen at the local store couple of weeks ago. I couldn’t make out where the item is being shipped from. I assume it is originated within the US itself unless I missed that information. If it is being shipped from out of the US, then it is my mistake and I shouldn’t write this at all. Here is the screen shot – shipping a toddler bed of size aprox 56inches X 30 inches.
